Ouistreham / Between Two Worlds

by Emmanuel Carrère Gala Premieres

Bestselling author Marianne Winckler employs unusual methods for her latest book project: in order to write about precarious working conditions in France, she takes a job as a cleaner in Normandy without revealing her true identity, and enters a world where every euro earned counts. Despite their predicament, there is a deep solidarity between her fellow workers, and it is not long before Marianne befriends the single mother Christèle. But what happens when the truth about Marianne's intentions comes to light? In his socially critical drama, director Emmanuel Carrère takes a look at the French employment crisis and tackles the question of where the line is drawn between inspiration and spectacle. Acting icon Juliette Binoche shines in the lead role.
